Mermaid's Treasure - Turquoise Necklace
I entered this necklace into the Class 50: Southwest Jewelry, any method, single item, modern.
I did not win an award for this item, but learned a good lesson from it also. Know the difference between modern and traditional before signing up for a category.
The pieces that this was competing with were out of this world beautiful and very much modern. I have a picture of the side view to see the weaving that holds the turquoise stone in the middle setting. I learned this technique through a tutorial listed on www.jewelrylessons.com
I have sold this piece while it was being displayed at the fair and had the luck to meet the people who purchased it. I hope they really enjoy it.
